Choose “Download” then “Direct Download” to save the documents to your computer.  Since this is such a large document - we recommend that you first hide the columns for any vendors and/or bus sizes you are not interested in.  It will be easier to view and print this way. 

Click the link above to review the bus bid results.  The file named "2018-2019 OMERESA Bids" will show you a side by side comparison of pricing for each bus size.  There are 4 tabs on this spreadsheet:  Conventional , Transit, Type A and Additional Type A. 

If you wish to view additional information from any of the vendors, please click on the folder to the vendor you are interested in.  These documents include Vendor Contact Information, Floor plans, Warranties, Stock Units and more.  Please remember:  Stock Units are limited in quantity and “first come, first served”. 

For any districts that did NOT participate in this year’s bus bid by filling out our survey and/or participating in our Legal Advertisement – you may still use this bid!  When we publish our Legal Advertisement we list each interested district along with the words “and ALL members of the Southwestern Ohio Educational Purchasing Council and Ohio Mid-Eastern Regional Educational Service Agency”.  So  ALL EPC & OMERESA Member Districts are covered on the legal advertisement and bid.  It IS necessary for your to pass a Board Resolution prior to purchasing though. 


Pricing is firm through January 16, 2019.  However, it is in our specifications that this pricing may be extended with prior authorization from the vendor you have chosen to purchase from.  All original Bus Bid Documents (including a copy of the Legal Advertisement) may be viewed at www.epcschools.org/bus.html.
